1 The first plumbing tips is know where your water mains shut off is guys.Why ? well this will save you a lot of heartache and cost if you can shut off mains if there is a bad leak.

2. Allied to number one  make sure all stops under sinks and behind toilets can be turned off without effort if a plumbing problem arises.

3.This next plumbing tip is vital. If you're installing or designing a new bathroom, make sure you have access to tub and shower valves from the other side of the wall.

4.  Now lets us talk of pipes,,galvanized water lines can corrode or rust shut.Plastic pipes - although far less expensive than copper - are not nearly as durable and don't perform nearly as well. So copper is best.

5.  When buying a new home, make sure the sewer lines are checked for any Problems this is a must, before you purchase.

Try not to use Drain cleaners

Straight out the gate let me warn you. Drain cleaners can actually damage your pipes and cause poor performance and also effect your health . Let me explore:

Effects of Drain cleaners

 The way drain cleaners work is by creating a chemical reaction, that generates heat.This is caused with the help of hydrochloric acid. These reaction can actually cause irreversible damage to your pipes.

Some thing to be aware of, if your pipes are plastic the chemical reaction can very well melt of deform your pipe. If you have metal pipes they are not immune to this chemical reaction. While they are more durable than that of the plastic pipe. The chemical reaction can weaken the metal which can lead to cracks over time. Older metal pipes are particularly vulnerable.
